SALA for Schools

How Credit Union SA is helping the next generation of South Australian artists to do more.

What is SALA Festival?

Established in 1998, the South Australian Living Artists (SALA) Festival is the largest open access visual arts festival in Australia.

For the entire month of August, audiences are able to explore, engage with and discover the work of South Australian artists in a diverse range of unique spaces across the CBD, suburbs and SA regions. All exhibitions are FREE.
